Traveling With LEAD
Tanzania- Summer 2016
Students enrolled in the LEAD concentration are given the opportunity to travel abroad for a LEAD Internship or to complete their LEAD Capstone. LEAD began a partnership with International Studies Abroad In the Summer of 2018 to offer many different international opportunities for students in the concentration. Students are able to travel to 1 of 11 different international options and complete either 3 or 6 credit hours. We believe that for students to be able to change the world, they must first have experienced the world. If accepted, cost depends on area of travel and length of stay.

Students will be given the chance to visit the battlegrounds and be taught the history behind the Civil War and the Battle of Gettysburg. Along with that, students will participate in leadership exercises and presentations to enhance their leadership skills and knowledge.
